A little paint, makes it what it ain't

I haven't much to share today for White Wednesday except for two small projects I undertook. I found this gold Syrocco style mirror with such beautiful lines. Now she's gold... Now she's white! Amazing what a paintbrush can do. The detail looks sooo much prettier now, don't you think?
Below, I found the simplest embellishing project on the planet. I found a shabby white tin box with handle. I affixed a vintage rhinestone earring to the front, added some pinkish lace to the handle, filled it with tissue paper and sold it in my booth space as an elegant gift bag/easter basket.

It sold the same day I brought it in. I love thinking up simple, new things to create... And of course I also get other ideas from some of the amazing bloggers and Etsy sellers out there.
I had to snap a pic of it as it sat on the counter waiting to go out the door.
I'm linking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm. Be sure to stop by and see all the wonderful whites!

For now....Happy White Wednesday, Happy Spring (even though it's going to SNOW here later this afternoon). Boo hoo! Well, as I always say...it's Spring when GOD says it's Spring, not when our calendars say it's Spring :)

Blessings and Hugs,

Karen
